Creating a WordPress Site in a Sub Domain

Hi,

I already have a website that I created using the WebSite Builder application. However, now I want to create a test site using WordPress. I created a subdomain test.mysitename.ca and I want to use it for the test site. How I would go around doing this?

 

Thanks for your help.

 

Regards,

 

Wissam

If you are doing this with Managed WordPress - just select external domain (first option in the dropdown) and then put in your URL test.mysitename.ca

 

If this is on a cPanel account you may have to add the subdomain first in cPanel before it will show in the installer

You should just need to set up the subdomain as an A record in the DNS pointed to the IP address of your server where your wordpress site is.

Hi,

 

I tried to create the WordPress site, but the installation wizzard does not show the subdomain as an option for setting up the site.

 

The current site that I have and I created using Website Building is taking the main domain. The WordPress site should be in the subdomain. but I do not see a choice from the path/directory options.
